8-Week Learning Journey for Teams
Building creative, resilient and functional teams through
training . practice . incorporation
it all started...
When leaders were asking us to support their teams to learn tools and practices that could support generativity and resilience in the face of the dynamic and constant change that is now the norm for all organizations and systems.
What they saw as challenges to be overcome, we see as opportunities to turn toward as sources of greater collective wisdom and creativity.
We know that
The conditions for greater creativity, connection, and resilience can be cultivated through simple practices and shared intentions.
ABOUT THE JOURNEY
RESEARCH AND CUSTOMIZATION
We believe it is important to get to know you before we work with you. This creates the conditions in which we can then customise the learning journey to align to the organizations purpose, mission and culture.
WHO IS this training FOR?
Functional teams and project teams that are looking to connect and maximise their productivity and creativity.
